As well as alerting people, Alarm.com system takes action in an emergency, triggering different devices to protect your home.
In a fire or CO event, your Alarm.com Smart Thermostat shuts down immediately, preventing smoke or gases spreading through your HVAC system. Your smart lighting also turns on to show you the way outside.
If you're equipped with our full Water Management solution (link), your home's water will shut off automatically at the source if a leak is detected – a valuable safeguard when even the tiniest crack in a pipe can leak 250 gallons in a day.
Fast action on leaks
Alarm.com also takes action against problems that traditional security systems can't touch. Most homes are vulnerable to water damage from leaks and burst pipes, which can quickly escalate if you're not there. Alarm.com's smart water solution detects water leaks, alerts you immediately so you can take quick action. With the addition of a water shut-off valve, Alarm.com can even turn your home's water supply off automatically to immediately stop damage.
Why Some Smart Smoke Detectors Are Safer Than Others
As a new generation of connected fire and smoke detectors hits the market, it's important to know that not every detector billed as "smart" delivers the maximum safety for your home and family. A detector that is part of a fully integrated Smart Home is always safer, smarter and more efficient than a standalone fire/smoke detector, particularly when it comes to taking action in an emergency.
If you're considering a connected detector or solution to protect against fire, smoke and carbon monoxide, there are three things you should know.
- Your fire and smoke detectors should automatically alert emergency services
- If your smoke detector depends on WiFi, you're taking a risk.
- Detectors provide more safety when they're part of a connected home system
Standalone fire/smoke detectors only understand one aspect of your home, a potentially costly limitation when it comes to life safety devices.
A fully integrated Smart Home pulls information from devices inside and outside the home, and enables your home to take action in the event of an emergency.
In the case of a fire, the home knows to shut down the HVAC to reduce the spread of smoke and ash, locks can automatically open to facilitate a fast exit, lights can turn on, and neighbors can be alerted to the danger. In this way, your house becomes safer when your devices are connected to each other through a Smart Home platform.
